Oscar Nominees: Best Animated Feature

My predictions: 2/3, picking “Tangled” over “The Illusionist”
My ballot: Come back next week!
The nominees: How to Train Your Dragon, The Illusionist, Toy Story 3

I was disappointed when I heard “The Illusionist” announced as the middle nominee (alphabetically) since that means that “Tangled” isn’t recognized, though at least it earns its status as an Oscar nominee with a Best Original Song mention. I’m mostly frustrated because, in a year with five clearly well-liked animated films, it makes sense for the category to have five rather than three nominees. Those damn rules again. Anyway, there’s no way that “Toy Story 3” loses this.

My current bet to win: “Toy Story 3”
